    Default Bottom half of phone flickers after update

    Hey,

    So I've had my galaxy s4 for just over a year, and I've never really had any problems, until this most recent update. Like other people, my battery is now dying much more quickly than it was before, but theres another issue that is driving me crazy. The bottom portion of my screen flickers all the time. The image on the screen is still present, but its as if the brightness on the bottom half can't make up it's mind. Has anyone else had this problem and was anyone successful in fixing it?

    Thanks!

    At a very minimum, you need to wipe cache partition through Recovery - I would suggest a full factory reset after backing up the device and saving any text messages, photos, files, etc that you may need.

    Often times issues can arise after a system update, especially if you are making the jump from one version of Android to the next. Good luck!
